My husband always dresses smartly, I have days where I look scruffy, usually when I am cleaning the house. My husband is always well turned out. A well ironed shirt completes an outfit and can work well with jeans, casual trousers or a suit. House of Fraser is a great place to find shirts of all styles, from well known brands to smart and casual shirts. My husband was looking for a smart shirt to take him from the warmer summer days into the cooler days of Autumn. He chose this New & Lingwood shirt in a blue gingham pattern.
It is a formal shirt but looks well teamed with a pair of chinos. The blue gingham pattern is stylish but not overbearing. The cuffs fasten with a press stud button which makes them look a little unusual. I think it looks really smart and would look great on an evening out. It would also work well for work.
The shirt looks good both when sitting and standing. The dog came to investigate what we were doing in the garden and was quite taken with the shirt as well. He had to pose with my husband to get his photo taken. I think he thought it was all a great game.
Eventually the dog got tired and went in allowing my husband to show off the outfit better. I think he has made a great choice and will get a lot of wear out of this shirt in the Autumn months. The shirt is 100% cotton so it will be easy to wash for me as well. It can be washed at 40C so I don’t need to do anything special, apart from make sure nothing red goes in the same wash.
